My First Award


As a new blogger I was shocked to find out my blog received an award!!!  I was so excited and honored!!!

A sweet blogger Diva gave me this award!!! Thank you girl!!  Be sure to check out her blog at:

Here are the requirements for accepting this award:

1.  Thank the blogger who nominated you.  Thanks again Diva!! : )
2.  Include a link to their site... see above.
3.  Include the award image on your blog...I added it to my side bar.
4.  Include 7 random facts about yourself:
  • I was in the army for 9 years-going through basic training was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life, but it gave me a determination to not fail.  I knew that if I could make it through basic I could accomplish anything that I set my mind to.
  • I am a Diva-I absolutely love to look good!! My outfits match from head to toe to pocketbook!!!  I go to the beauty parlor every week (Fri or Sat).  I also get my nails done and a pedicure (only in the summer) every two-weeks.
  • I am determined to lose 100 pounds-there I said it!! Yes!!! I am over weight...but I am determined to lose the battle of the bulge.  Remember what I told you...when I put my mind to it....watch out for the transformation-speak those things that be not at though they were!!! I can and I will do it!!
  • I love to sew, decorate, and shop (well that goes without saying-hence the Diva in me).
  • I am a mini hoarder-I have so much teaching and sewing supplies and no place to store them-so needless to say my extra bedroom (trying to make it into a office) is a hot mess, so is my classroom closet-help me!!!lol
  • I love Winnie the Pooh-I started collecting all things Pooh, but I had no place to put it so I stopped-he is still cute though-my desk top screen saver has a picture of Pooh and so does my cell phone and I have a few watches.
  • I spent 3 years in Germany-but did not get a chance to tour and see the sites due to the Gulf War that broke out-they suspended all travel-I had to cancel my trip to Rome and Paris I was so heart broken-Maybe one day I will get a chance to go back.
5.  Nominate 15 other blogs for this award (I nominated newbies like me...)

7.  Let bloggers know they have been nominated.   I am leaving a comment on  the most recent post on each of the 15 blogs!!

And now for my speech... I would like to thank GOD, my mom, my kids...Oh, sorry!!!  I got caught up in the moment... I was having a flashback to the award shows they have on television...lol 

Congratulations to you all!!!

  6. Thank you so much for the award, Crystal !! The western theme is so cute - I love it :) I had to laugh out loud when you called yourself a mini-hoarder. I just do not have enough room for all the teacher and craft stuff that is taking over, so I can relate. haha. And good luck on your weight loss journey - I am in the exact same boat !! By the way, I'm your newest follower :)
